LATEST WAR SUMMARY  Reports from Flanders the past  few days indicate a decided. advance of the "British and French  forces in the vicinity of Arras,  and a costly check of the German  advance at Ypres. "Never_ have  the British lines been subjected to  a heavier weight of nictal than  was trained upon* them by the  German massed artillery at Ypres,-  and~ never have they been assailed  by larger and more determined  bodies of infantry," says the report; "The " British lines were  rudely shaken, but never pierced.  They bent under'the pressure but  did not break."      ���������������������������-       /    ** .  The losses on " both sides" have  been very heavy.. The British  losses have been made good, and  the line is again solid and reinforced. The Germans, the report  says, have not'shown a similar recuperation, and it is believed that  the limit of their reinforcements  has" been reached/  While the British have held the  Germans in check,in Flanders, it  is reported the French have won  success and-glory in Artbis. 7 The  brilliant feat of arms'achieved .in  the capture of Carency, will live- in  history.       ,7~'    - ".

Here we crossed the Festubert-  Quinqiie road and advanced nearly  a mile into the German lines."  , On the line of the* Yser from the  sea to Dixmude the. Belgian army  is holding its positions with a  force reorganized, fully equipped  and well supplied with artillery.  In the Dardanelles, it is reported  the Turkish land forces are unable to withstand the steady advance of thc British troops. Here,  again the losses are.reported to be  very, heavy..  In the House of Commons on  Tuesday Earl Kitchener asked the  nation to provide 300,000 more  inen=for=.nesv_armies=.to_be_pr.epared_  for the front. He also stated that  it was the intention of the War  Oflice to provide poison gas  bombs with which to fight back at  the enemy.  On thc Eastern front thc Russians have fallen back from thc  Carpathians to thc San river, a  distance of 75 or 80 miles.    This  retreat, Petrograd reports say, was  for "strategic reasons," to enable  thc adjacent armies to-unite their  fronts. The report concludes:  - "Although we were obliged to  fall back in the Carpathians we  simultaneously made a decisive  offensive in  Eastern  Galicia."  The German. - war office announces that in the recent fighting  in .Galicia and Russian Poland  143,500 Russians had been captured. It also states that 69 cannon and 225 machine ,guns had  been taken from the Russians, and  that the victorious Austrian and  ^German forces,' continuing their  advance eastward in Galicia, are  now approaching the fortress of  Przemysl. *_  A PLEASING PERFORMANCE  THE AMERICAN NOTE  Enderby theatre-goers forgot the  sting   of   the   Henderson   hornets,  and  turned   out- well  oh  Tuesday  evening to-hear-the  1915  Follies.

MAY 20, 1915  REALIZING THEIR TRUE INTEREST  A writer in thc Slocan Record says that many  ol' our farmers, especially in the more progressive communities of lhe Wcsl, arc beginning to  realize that Iheir true interests arc best served  when they support their own counlry lown. They  have learned to resist   thc temptation of mail  order catalogues and to give their cash business  instead lo Iheir own local stores.   Not only, their  , own experience, but more especially thc experience of brother farmers in thc United States, has  taught Ihem that lhc inevitable outcome of'sending their cash orders away to mail order houses  is llie degeneration of their own country lown,  and lhc decrease in value of their own farm properly.    *    *    *   But if lhc farmers arc beginning  to learn the lesson thnt they must support their  counlry lown in'order lo advance Iheir own best  interests, il is of very great importance lhal retail  mcrchanl   should take immediate slcps to oiler  to farmers a more cflicicnt service lhan the best  hc has hitherto offered.   If thc country merchant  is supported by lhe farmer's cash business as well  as by his credit business, lhere is no reason why  hc should not produce a service equal to thc best  lhat any mail order house can oiler, both as regards the price and quality of his goods.  There arc some people who knock everything  but thc persimmons���������������������������exactly.  seats will be filled by Liberals without a contest.  It is also intimated that three private members  will be asked to resign in order to give the Liberals a working majority.  The resignation of the Roblin Government  after so many years of faithful service to the province of Manitoba, is the result of certain irregularities in connection with contracts let by the  government. The Winnipeg Telegram (Conservative) says il is a situation that no government  could undertake to defend, and a condition that  that lhe people ought not to be expected to condone. "Thc government has been betrayed by  those who should have jealously guarded its interests and those of thc province. Constitutionally the government cannot evade responsibility.  Its resignation follows as a matter of course."  In ��������������������������� this connection the Hartney, (Man.)* Star  expresses ils honest convictions thusly���������������������������convictions that arc commonly heard from men in both  parlies, and elsewhere as well as in Manitoba:  "If thc electors of Manitoba today feci thc sting of  disgrace in what has happened, they have the satisfaction of knowing that Ihey have only themselves to  blame, as thc electors of any party always have when  they see Iheir leaders going wrong wilh a full head of  steam and fail to call them.to -task in a manner that  will make them understand that they must right about  turn. * * * If one half of what one political, party  in this country says about the other political party is  true, then Canada has thc biggest lot of rogues and  rascals in thc government and opposition ranks that  is lo be found outside the penitentiary, not excepting  Ihe contractors, railroad heads, manufacturers or  other graft and privilege-seeking classes. Hence  changing thc men will not safe-guard thc honor of  the country- Nothing but an honest, high-thinking,  electorate can do this or give us clean, honest politicians.    Can we as a people deliver the goods?"  It's all right, Tobias; other people arc talking  about you just as much as you are talking about  them.  A NOVEL PATRIOTISM  COMMUNITYINTEREST  Experience has demonstrated lhal many men  are inclined lo purchase their building materials  outside of Iheir own communityVnot realizing  lhat lhe local dealer stands his proportion of lhe  .expense of maintaining lhc local government,  lhal he employs men whose salaries or wages  are spent in lhe.community, and who in all ways  conducts his business-as-~a-model citizen should;  This commtinily, in common with all others,  is dependent for its general success on the units  comprising il, and lhis is made effective by the  aforesaid \mils giving each other lhe benefit of  business transactions, whenever and wherever  possible. These units should remember and follow lhe aposlolic command to Move one another,'  and in addition Ihcy should paraphrase lhat rule  for happiness and peace by resolving lo 'purchase  from each olher," and likewise should adhere as  religiously to the killer as thc former. If all do  lhis il would develop a community of inleresl,  where each contributes to, as well as participating in, lhe improvement and betterment of lhc  home lown, and a response to thc spirit of this  progressive step would mean the purchasing, of  one's requirements in thc home town whenever  possible to do so.  Now is a good time lo remember the old saw:  "You never "hear lhe top dog do any whining."  CAN WE DELIVER ?  Lasl Wednesday lhc Roblin Government of  Manitoba resigned; and Sir Douglas Cameron, the  lieutenant-governor, called upon T. C. Norris,  leader of lhe Opposition, Lo form a government.  11 is understood that the seven ministers will resign their seats in the Legislature and lhal these  "Hoist your flags, mob and rob innocent Teuton-born citizens and residents of Canada, but  keep your able-bodied sons at home."  This criticism, made by an old-day loyalist,  may sound harsh, but it hits thc tack on the big  end. In thc past week or two wc have heard a  deal of loud, lawless talking by people whose  intentions arc no doubt good, but whose anger  evidently gets thc better of their loyalty. It is so  much easier to storm the home or place.of business of a lone German-born Canadian than to  shoulder a gun and go to the front- Resorting to  mob violence, whether in Canada or England,  is not loyalty. In reference to' the Victoria rioting and thc violent demonstrations against thc  Germans all over the Empire, the Vancouver  Province well says:  "Such ebullitions of wrath, while perhaps not surprising under the circumstances, are greatly to be^deplored. 'They arc made the excuse of robbery with  violence ancl destruction carried out in thc excitement  of the moment. If men wish to display their feelings  against the Germans by violence, there is plenty of  room in thc trenches in Flanders, and the nearest  way there is through the recruiting offices. There  arc many people who have been subjects of Germany  living here who long since renounced their former  citizenship, and it is foolish to vent on these innocent  people feelings which had better be reserved for  actual fighting. Germany is a foe against whom we  need to organize our last dollar and man. Stern determination is necessary, but "Be British." It is not  British lo destroy shops or otherwise commit violence  on unoffending citizens whohappen lo have had the  m i s fo rt u no-to-ha-vc-bccn=bo rn_i n__Germ a n v At_J_u_  same lime il is necessary lo warn sympathizers with  Germany, lhat British citizens will not stand for expressions or arguments which seek to show lhat Germany is. right in her piratical contentions."

ALLIES MAKING HEAD  It is evident from the ollicial reports received  from Flanders this week lhat lhe armies of lhc  Allies are nol only holding lhe Germans in check,  but are steadily thrusting them back. The news  from this I'ronl is more encouraging this week  lhan il has been since thc spring campaign  opened. If these gains can be held it is certain  that further progress will be made within a few  days. 11 does nol appear lhal thc long expected  advance has started, though it would seem that  this latest victory, as well as lhe Neuve Chapclle  advance, is one of lhe preliminary steps which  must be laken preparatory lo the general offensive movement forward. It seems that the  Allies are taking advantage of the opportunity  now presenting itself, while the great masses of  thc enemy arc engaged in thc Galecian campaign  against the Russians, to get the enemy in the  West on lhc move. How long the Teuton army  will be held on lhe Eastern frontier is a question  which none can answer. It is apparent the Russian steam roller failed badly in its efforts to get  through thc Carpathians. This entire campaign,  it seems, has been abandoned, temporarily at  least, and il will undoubtedly require some time  for the Russian army lo be reformed for a general advance on anything like thc magnitude of  tbe last movement against Hungary.

Owing to  the~ mild-winter'and  the   favorable . conditions    which  prevailed during the critical period of March and April, the  fall  wheat  crop  is  reported  as  being  exceptional.       In 'Ontario,   where  1,043,000 acres were sown as estimated Jast fall, riot more than 6.8  percent is reported winter killed,  and in Alberta,^ with 230,000 acres  estimated as sown, the proportion  winter killed is only 6.2 percent.  These proportions are lower than  in any year since 1908-9 for Ontario,- and lower- than in% any. previous year on record for Alberta.  Last  year  the  percentage  winter  killed was 19 in, Ontario, and 15.6  ih  Alberta.    In  Ontario  the  area'  winter killed amounts this year to  71,000   acres, oand   in- Alberta   to  ,14,300   acres.     These   figures   de-  ducted from' the'ar'eas sown leave  972,000 acres in Ontario and 215,-  .7,00 acres * in - Alberta as" the areas  under fall wheat to be harvested.  ,\Vith %10,900. .acres :.in , Manitoba,  -4,10b  acres; in  Saskatchewan  and  6,000 vacres, in x British \ Columbia,  the total .area under fall wheat to.  be harvested' this year" amounts to'  i*j208;'700 acres,T*fas-compared* with  "973,300 acres,';the . area, harvested  in-1914. .Whilst,, therefore,-; as previously reported, the area sown to  wheat:, last   fall" was   9   per   cent  more than the area sown in the fall  of. 19.13,_the ..increased area, to be  harvested, owing to the small area  winter killed,  amounts.to 24 per  cent.    Not less satisfactory is the  general   condition,   which,   measured -by the  standard  of  100,  as  representing a_.full crop, is 93 in  Ontario, as compared with 81 last  year, and .83 in Alberta, as compared.'with  87:    For  Ontario the  figure is higher than in any year  since -1910   when- 95"������������������_;   was   recorded; for Alberta this year's condition was only exceeded last year  and in 1911.   The condition of the  whole-*-of=Ganada-=onMpriK30^was  91  which, converted into  a standard  of  100  as  representing  the  average   condition   at   the   same  period for the six years 1909-14,  indicates a condition of 112, or an  anticipated  yield  per  acre  of  12  per cent in excess of the average,  provided  that  conditions between  now and harvest time, arc not abnormal.  It is as yet too soon to report on  the Maritime provinces, but excellent progress in thc seeding of  spring grains is reported from all  the other six provinces. The  spring is early, and as a general  rule the conditions for seeding  have been most favorable. About  double the amount of seeding was  accomplished this year on April  30 than was completed on May 6,  1914. Of spring wheat 55 percent  of the total was finished in Quebec  as against 5 percent last year; in  Ontario 73 percent against 24 per  cent; in the three western provinces 93 percent was completed, in  Manitoba 94 per cent, in Saskatchewan and 91 per cent in Alberta,  these proportions being higher  than in any year since 1910. In  British Columbia the percentage  is 89. For all six provinces the  proportion of seeding reported as  effected on April 30th was 84 per  cent for wheat, 45 per cent for  oats, 38 per cent for barley and  63 per cent for all crops.

The.nation  which" produces the greatest'quantity of ammunition is the strongest  nation.    Another ^may have twice  its strength in ymeri.    Strength in  shells is the  factor.    No advance,  against  entrenchments  is  possible  without an expenditure of ammunition   which  would . have   fought  the ', Napoleonic     wars.,     Ncuve  of an entire campaign.    A -French  advance in Alsace, gaining a few  hundred yards, requires the use of  more   ammunition   than   in   other  wars decided the fate of empires.  ���������������������������Chicago Tribune. ���������������������������   -   *  PASSENGERS AND ARMS  This opinion expressed by Gen.

ENOUGH OF IT  The general was riding on a  "blazing hot day when a dilapidated  soldier, his clothes in rags and  wilh no shoes, his head bandaged  and his arm. in a sling, came in  sight. The general stopped. "Why,  my good fellow, you seem to be  pretty well done for."  "Yes, sir, I am just a bit," said  the soldier. Then looking up at  the general, hc continued: "General, I love my country. I'd fight  for my country. I'd starve and go  thirsty for my country. I'd die for  my country. But if ever this confounded war i.s over, I'll never love  another  country."

The Brownie Tea Rooms are  thc popular meeting place for the  people who want lo talk it over  over a cup of tea.  ;, In the Toronto Saturday Night  of May 15th, a communication appears from the president of one of  the largest manufacturing establishments in Canada, showing the  manner in which Canadian banks  have started out with the intention  of making their customers pay the  war tax, and Saturday Night asks  the question: Will thc Minister of  Finance give a ruling-as to thc legality of this attempt of the chartered banks'of Canada lo shift the  burden from their own shoulders  lo the shoulders of thc banks' customers?   Thc communication is as  follows:  Dear Sir: Your a I ten tion is directed to the attached notice.  Nol ice  - To cover the cost of the Special  War Taxes imposed by the Dominion Government of Canada deductions from lhc within remittance  have been made on the following  basis:  War stamp on each unstamped item received for  collection    2c  War stamp on  remittance. .2c  War stamp on letter   lc  These deductions are over and  above ordinary commission and  exchange charges.  These notices are coming in  from banks in various parts of the  country, the first one received  coming from Bank of Montreal,  Lethbridge, Alta.  The original notice is printed on  a slip of paper 5"V_x3**_ in. in size.  It shows plainly that it is the intention of thc Bankers' Union to  make the business people of this  country pay for war stamps, thc  expense of which they themselves  should stand. Thc matter seems to  be of such importance that vigorous action should be .taken immediately. It is surely not the intention of thc Government that the  value of a lc or 2c war stamp  should be charged to a customer of  a bank, or a customer, in any line  of business.  This thing works out about as  follows: For instance, a business  concern makes a draft on a cus:  tomcr for amount of bill of goods  which has become clue. The .concern naturally attaches a 2c war  stamp lo the draft, and besides attaches a war stamp to the envelope  containing the draft. The concern  have in this way done their duty  by paying their share of the war  tax as far as this transaction is  concerned. These  usually drawn--with  collection charges,  that the bank should collect the exchange and all expense from the  party at the other end. The banks,  however, arc apparently not treat-  drafts are  exchange and  which   means  What Wie Creator  "When the Creator had made all the good  things, there was still some dirty work to do, so  He made the beasts and reptiles and poisonous  insects, and when He had finished He had some  scraps that were too bad to put into the Rattle  Snake, the Hyena, the Scorpion and the Skunk,  so He put all these together, covered it with  suspicion, wrapped it with jealousy, marked it  with a yellow streak and called it a KNOCKER.  "This product was so fearful to contemplate  that he had to make something to counteract it,  so He took a sunbeam and put it in the heart of  a child, the brain of a man, wrapped these in  civic pride, covered it with brotherly love, gave  it a mask of velvet and a grasp of steel, and called  it a BOOSTER; made him a lover of fields and  flowers and manly sports, a believer in equality  and justice, and ever since where these were,  mortal man has had the privilege of choosing his  associates."  ing the war- stamps they have to  use as part of thc war expense  they themselves should bear, for,  before remitting thc proceeds of  the draft referred to they deduct  for war stamp on thc remittance,  2c, and lc for war stamp on their  envelope in which proceeds of the  collection are returned to the concern who made the draft. In case  of a draft drawn without exchange  they deduct the exchange and also  value of war stamps. Owing to thc  fact that war stamp of 2c was  placed on the draft drawn on thc  customer, they, of course, do not  and cannot deducl that.  Thc point in question is not  merely that of 3c, but the results  arc very bad, and make extra work  in the bookkeeping line. Instead  of receiving say $75, thc concern  who made the draft will receive  $74.97, which involves making a  separate entry of the 3c item.  Aside from these points, the intention of war tax is undoubtedly  to make each individual and each  concern pay their share. It can  readily be seen that the house making the draft is in a helpless position, for the 3c, or whatever the  amount may be, is retained out of  their funds, and there is no practical way of making thc bank refund the amount, or at least if this  is attempted, the expense would be  greater than the amount involved.  You will note, by copy of the  printed notice the banks arc using  that they are clever enough not to  have the name of the bank appear  in thc notice.  You will be doing good work if  you will show this thing up, and  thc sooner, it is done the better.  The affair in question is an outrageous hold-up, and should be exposed. Bankers of Canada are  supposed to be big people. Are  they? Another way in which the  banks arc giving the business people and the public generally thc  worst of it "at the present time is  owing to the ourtagcous charges  they make on checks and drafts on  New York ancl. other U. S. points.  This charge averages at present %  of 1- per cent. This means a  charge of $37.50 on a draft of  $5,000���������������������������and other amounts in like  proportion.  DERNBERG GETS OUT  Dr. Bcrnhard Dernberg, former  German colonial secretary, and  known as unofficial spokesman in  the United States for the German  cause, has voluntarily decided to  leave that country, in view of the  critical turn in the relations between that country and Germany.  The action of Dr. Dernberg relieves Prcsiden Wilson of the unpleasant necessity of asking him to  leave the country.
